One of the accompanying events will be Polish ICT Week, which will consist of two elements: an exhibition of the most interesting Polish companies in the ICT sector (organized by the Ministry of Administration and Digitization) and accompanying events like a conference organized by PARP during which eight Polish tech companies will present their most innovative ideas. Check out our representatives and the idea behind ICT Week in Milan
EXPO is recognized as one of the most prestigious promotional events in the world. It is a great opportunity to show a nation’s economic potential to a wider audience. This year such a chance was given to eight start-ups from the new technologies sector selected by the Ministry of Administration and Digitization (MAC). They’ll present their projects in the form of interactive stands on October 12-18 during the Polish ICT Week in the Polish pavilion at EXPO Milano 2015.
You can find out a bit more about the start-ups before then:
1) Digital Core Design - a leading Intellectual Property (IP) Core provider and System-on-Chip (SoC) design house and the creator of the world's fastest 8051 CPU – the DQ80251, which was presented to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and EU President Donald Tusk, during CeBIT 2013 official opening ceremony. DCD will present a project called “New design solutions in the field of innovation on a global scale”.

It’s a 32-bit, royalty-free, deeply embedded CPU, introduced in mid-September during the conference held at the Ministry of Economy in Warsaw. We haven’t forgotten that our presentation should offer something more for visitors. That’s why along with the CPU, we’ll use a special 3D hologram device to present D32PRO’s functionality. And this is just the beginning,” promises Tomeq Cwienk, PR and marketing manager at Digital Core Design in a statement for web.gov.pl.

“Participation in EXPO 2015 is an excellent opportunity to present projects that are based on native Polish technologies while presenting innovation on a global scale. We invite you to visit our stand. In addition to the presentation of the project, we want to share our knowledge about the dynamic development of Polish photonic technologies, introduce our business and prove that photonics will soon develop and modernize industry worldwide. We hope that EXPO participants and the audience will recognize that Poland has its own advanced technologies that can be developed through participation in various projects and programs (national and EU), and to implement advanced solutions for the industry. Many domestic and foreign companies have already decided to bet on Polish innovative fiber technologies. With proper promotion and cooperation with scientific and business leaders for the development of indigenous photonic technology, we have a chance to develop and modernize the Polish economy and become an important player on the market for modern advanced technology,” Edward Kukliński from InPhoTech told web.gov.pl.
